need a really simple explaination

Hello all,

Can anyone give me the idiots guide to Extra Easy please. I get red and I get green days. But other than that I have no idea about the other ways you can do SW!! I thought with EE you had the things that are free on red and green, but then doesn't that defeat the idea of the red and green days.... I am having a dippy moment!!

Please help!!

EE is the same as red and green EXCEPT:

1 HEa

All the free foods lists from both plans are FREE on EE.

That's it in a nutshell. If ever a SYN food contains a value on red and/or green, count the lower value.
Been wondering this myself... Does this mean I could have all the pasta/rice I wanted AND as much meat as I fancied too?? Sounds too good to be right lol


believe they do recommend that 1/3 of your plate is filled with SuperFree food though, which is the Free Foods like Veg/Fruit etc that are free on BOTH Red and Green days (so not peas, parsnips etc).

Please correct me anyone if I am wrong anyone.

Yep, don't be scared. Oh, and if you come across products that contain both red free AND green free foods, count the lower syn value:

eg: Tesco Sushi - primarily rice, with some chicken and fish so count the lower syn value.

I love the EE plan and Im always full. The others have explained it perfectly, but if you are still a little unsure, post your food diary for the day and we can have a look at it for you.
Good luck hun, it really is as good as it sounds!

There's quite a lot of advice threads about EE on this forum but the others here have given a pretty good "simplified" explanation you asked for - I love the EE plan and have been doing it (most of the time) since it came out at Christmas! Best o'luck'n'stuff with it!
